scowie Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 09 Aug 09

Not had a mention yet is the unique "The House Without a Name" at Bradshaw near Bolton.My father who died ten years ago remembers the "Bradshaw Chorus" (He Advance-ed me a shilling, a shilling from the Crown) being sung there as a boy.I have seen the song mentioned as thus in old publications.
In reply to Sue Allens query a "Wye" calf(or Cauve in the Lancashire vernacular)was one of the female variety, and so a replacement,more welcome than a bull calf which had to be sold and was of little value.
As for by-names the long gone Scotch Vaults in Bolton, were known as "The Deep End" there was a shallow end for the more trivial crimes!
